Climate Change Increases Runoff In Eastern U.S. Forests

Date : 27th July 2009, Source : ENS

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania, July 27, 2009 (ENS) - Computer models of climate change may be underestimating how much water is likely to run off the land and back into the oceans as human activities pump more carbon dioxide and ozone into the atmosphere, a team of NASA-funded researchers concludes. Runoff may be as much as 17 percent higher in forests of the eastern United States when models also account for changes in soil nitrogen levels and atmospheric ozone exposure.
